From the designs of our Iphones to the office buildings in which we work: we are surrounded by Bauhaus.

The Hortobágy region of Eastern Hungary has been a cradle of traditional agricultural and pastoral professions for 11 centuries, many of which have been tightly connected to the live stock. Shepherds herding horses, sheep, cattle, pigs and goose were the characteristic, nomadic or half-nomadic pastoral professions on the Great Plains or the “Puszta” (the Hungarian steppe). As the name suggests (“puszta” means barren or wasteland in Hungarian), life here has never been easy. The daily routine of the shepherds started around early dawn around sunrise and normally ended after sunset, with no weekends. While this has changed a bit, as present day shepherds have day-offs (regulated by labour laws), weekends are non-existent and they work around long hours in daily shifts. Some shepherds are half-nomadic, spending only the daytime outdoors, while others (for example cattle herders) are often fully nomadic, spending even weeks outdoors in the field with the live stock.
